Brodhead Watershed Assn. Autumn Wander Nov. 15 In Monroe County

Brodhead Watershed Association and Pocono Heritage Land Trust naturalists will lead and Autumn Wander on November 15 through the nature-decorated 777-acre Paradise Price Preserve, a gem in the Monroe County Open Space Program that features natural history and abundant beauty.
In addition to protecting significant headwater lands, small tributary streams,forested wetlands and numerous coldwater springs, this natural area includes the beautiful Targa Falls on Brodhead Creek, and connects open space lands across Price, Paradise and Barrett townships, forming nearly 1,600 contiguous acres.
Hike leaders Don Miller and Bill Sweeney will introduce participants to several trails and natural features on this and other protected properties in the Cranberry Creek watershed. Hikers can also visit nearby Targa Falls.
The walk will be on level to slightly uphill terrain, both on and off trail. Participants should be comfortable in an outdoor setting for several hours, and dress comfortably to be outdoors with footwear appropriate for walking in the woods.
Meet: From Routes 940 and 191 in Paradise Valley (near Crescent Lodge), take Cranberry Road to Henry’s Crossing Road. The trailhead parking area is off Henry’s Crossing Road, just after crossing the Delaware and Lackawanna Railroad.
Cost: Suggested donations are $5 for members, $10 for nonmembers; children 12 and under walk for free.
Registration: Contact PHLT at 570-424-1514 or send email to:
